Born in Lichfield and raised in Hammerwich, Paul decided to leave school at 16 and earn some money. Having no idea what he wanted to do he started working for an accountancy firm for a short time and worked for a Stockbrokers for nearly 10 years. When the stockbrokers were acquired in 1999, Paul took a golden handshake and transitioned into technical recruitment.

Paul joined Network in October 2002 his second role in recruitment. Earning his directorship in 2012 Paul helped guide the business successfully through the recession and set up the Food and Drink division. He’s still hands on recruiting and enjoys working closely with his clients and colleagues. Amongst other activities Paul heads up Network’s Recruitment Academy.

Paul has a passion for music, food, sport, travel and spending time with his family. His influences span from Morrissey to Mohammed Ali. He is also a retired football coach, who enjoys playing more and for some ridiculous reason has been an avid lifetime follower of Birmingham City, which he believes has strengthened his resolve, taught him how to lose gracefully and celebrate every minor success! We agree.
